For the first time, Engage! makes its way to coastal South Carolina to Montage Palmetto Bluff for a classic southern escape. Nestled along the scenic May River in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, Montage Palmetto Bluff is set within a vibrant 20,000-acre community between Hilton Head Island and Savannah. Providing guests access to all that Palmetto Bluff has to offer, the resort and Inn (which opened in 2016) encompasses an extensive nature preserve, two picturesque villages featuring nine Southern-inspired dining options, a riverfront marina and a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.
This charming backdrop is the perfect place to Engage!. Our mission is to connect, educate and inspire the best of the best in the wedding and special-events industry, through a carefully curated lineup of speakers and social events. Attendees are vetted as well, creating a highly professional yet candid atmosphere designed to foster sharing of business strategies and personal philosophies, and to build meaningful connections among speakers and attendees.
